Longevity Awards

While participants receive 10-year priority status after completing ten adult races, longevity recognition is initially awarded to those participants who have run 20 races (non-consecutive or consecutive).  Runners who continue to participate in the Mount Marathon Race® receive additional recognition each time they have completed an additional 10 races.
